The Management Information Systems major prepares students to plan for, design, use, and manage digital assets of an organization. Digital assets of a modern business environment involve not only technology but also the IT-enabled processes governing business activities as well as the associated information/knowledge acquisition, processing, synthesis, management, and transfer processes. MIS coursework prepares students to make better decisions by applying information technologies to solve business problems and transform enterprise operations, and to innovate and manage business processes in different functional areas through the best use of the technological infrastructure of an organization. The collective impact of the coursework is to enable students to understand the role of technology in creating business opportunities and to acquire the skills necessary for the functional management of the tasks needed to secure those opportunities.
